The Isle of Iona

The Isle of Iona is tiny in size but huge in terms of special charm, wildlife, beauty, global influence and fascinating history.

Known as the “cradle of Christianity”, Iona has an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity, enhanced by shell-sand beaches and fringed with intense blue-green seas. Accessed by a short ferry journey from the Ross of Mull, your first stop might be a visit to the Abbey. But Iona has many other exceptional qualities waiting for you to experience; an unspoiled natural environment where rare wildlife thrives.
